Frequently Asked Questions

  • I am changing law firms. Do I need to establish a new login and password?

    You do not need to register for an ECF password more than once. However, you must request a new password if you change firms and you must update your address and e-mail information in the Utilities option of the ECF system.

  • I have attended the training class, may I take it again?

    Attorneys and other professionals may take the class more than once. If you currently have a login and password and you hire a new employee(s) who will be working on the ECF system, the court requests that they attend the ECF training before using the system.

  • Do I have to attend an ECF training class to receive a password?
